  • [01] MASSIVE DEPORTATION OF ALBANIAN EMIGRANTS CONTINUES

    GJIROKASTER, JAN 11 (ATA)-By H. Cani, The influx of Albanian emigrants deported by the Greek police at the border crossing point of Kakavija continues.

    "Some 370 emigrants returned at 14.00 today," police sources of Gjirokastra confirm to ATA. According to the sources the number of the returned emigrants is expected to increase during the evening hours.

    Sonce January 8, when the massive deportation of Albanian emigrants from Greece began, the number of the returned has reached 3 000.

    This deportation was sparked by a burglary in a family in Athens during the New Year days whose authors, according to the Greek police, are thought to be Albanians.

    Returned emigrants tell ATA that they have been maltreated, even terrorised by the Greek police. Many of them, according to the Kakavija border police authorities, had regular documents. a.ke/kei/lm/k

    [02] UNION OF THE RIGHT CREATED IN BERAT

    BERAT, Jan 11 (ATA)- By I. Manka,

    Members anbd sympathizers of the extreme right parties, the Legality Movement, The National Front, the Democratic Wright Wing created Saturday the Berati Union of the Right.

    "It was created after the example of the Shkodra Union of the Right," the secretary of the Berati National Front Party, told ATA.

    Another participant considered this move "independance of the party centres we belong to".

    The participants criticised the party centres which are distancing themselves from their members.

    An assembly of five members was elected at the meeting. Luan Myftiu, independent intellectual, was elected chairman of the assembly.

    In the May 26 elections for deputies to the People's Assembly and those of October 20 for local government, the extreme right parties captured together about 2.3 per cent of the vote.

    The Berati municipality is represented only by the Democratic Party, the Socialist Party and the Centre Pole.

    The Shkodra Right Wing League, created an alliance of the Legality Movement Party and the National Front Party, Northern Albania, won in these elections the post the city mayor in the October 20 local elections.

    In December 1996, the Legality Movement Party and the National Front Party created an alliance named the Union of the Albanian Right.a.ke/rf/lm/k

    [05] PRESS REVIEW

    TIRANA, JAN 12 (ATA0- Today's Rilindja Demokratike says:"The year 1996, a year of important transformations in the reformation of the Albanian Army" and "reorganisation of the banking system in support of the rapid economic development".

    The paper covers the visit of the Secretary for the DP Public Relations, Ferdinant Xhaferi, to Italy and his meeting with the director of the Italian Foreign Minister Cabinet, Ambassador Umberto Vatani.

    On the occasion of the fifth anniversary of the creation of the Albanian Eur.-Socialist Youth Forum, Zeri i Popullit carries the editorial:"For the SPA the present is vital and the future sure". The paper says that the loan-taking "Populli" Foundation has denounced the National Trade Bank, which, according to the president of this foundation, Bashkim Driza, "is creating obstacles through bureaucratic and arbitrary acts and is not responding on time to our demands for regular payments".

    Republika says:"'Populli' will stop the activity", and cites Driza as saying that the money provided by the bank do not suffice to make the payments. The paper also says that "The deportation and maltreatment of the Albanians continue", regarding the economic emigrants Greece is returning to Albania following burglaries in several houses in Athens and whose authors are thought to be Albanians.

    Albania says in its editorial that the "Populli" foundation has offered it 100 000 dollars "for the newspaper to keep silent regarding its great problems in the loan activity".

    "Hajdari pays the boycotters of classes", says Albania regarding the stimulation by Azem hajdari of the students to boycott classes and stage a strike.

    Hajdari pretends to be Chairman of the Albanian Independent Trade Union, a thing which has not been recognised by the court.

    Koha Jone says:"Bashkim Driza, president of the "Populli"foundation accuses state banks of blocking the activity and nonpayment of interests".

    Regarding the students' strike on the fulfilment of several economic demands, the paper says that :"The strike continues, all the universities will involve in it tomorrow".

    Dita Informacion says: "The number of loan depositors in Durres decreases" and "Measles poses a threat".

    Gazeta Shqiptare reports on the strike: "Students in rallies tomorrow: Concerts and many speeches", and "Police guard bosses of usuries". kei/lm/k
